Glorietta Bay Inn met all our expectations for an anniversary outing to be remembered. We enjoyed an exceptionally quiet combined bedroom and sitting room (Lillie's Room) in the Spreckels' Mansion. It felt more like a cozy B&B than a hotel. Directly across the street from the Del, we strolled two blocks to dinner on the main street, and found the October weather warm enough to enjoy dining outdoors. A balmy afternoon was spent at the serene pool overlooking the bay...perhaps water could have been heated more? Each night before, we filled out a request for the breakfast of our choice and it was delivered to our room exactly at the specified hour, with hot food HOT and cold food COLD. They termed it a Continental Breakfast, but had a dozen good items to choose from including oatmeal, bagels, sliced fruit, etc. so I'd say it was more than that. There were two TVs, one in each space, plasma, no less with great reception. The staff were pleasant, and helpful. An afternoon lemonade & cookies break were a welcome addition, as well as tea, anytime we wanted. Pampered, is the word for it, and fun!
